Egg sandwich and orange juice from metro d├ępaneur - $7.10

Jessica and I were not feeling the moussaka lunch, so we headed out to our favorite greasy spoon. It's on De la Commune and it's called "Restaurant Restaurant" (or so the sign says). The menu says otherwise, as many of the items are called Ritz this and Ritz that. Pretty funny if you consider what the place looks like.

The grill is also one of the most ancient (but well kept!) piece of kitchen equipment I have seen in a fast-food restaurant.

I was munching while waiting for the grocery order to come in. But by the time it did, I was full of salt and potatoes and not hungry for dinner. Bleh.

The grocery order was $136 with tip.

Money spent on food today: $150.91

OMG it's a sale!

At work, one of my accounts is the SAQ so I always make notes of upcoming sales in my agenda. And now, it's time to check if my bar is ready for Halloween and the upcoming Holiday seasons, because when you buy two bottles or more at the SAQ this weekend, you'll get 15% off. I know I will go grab a few bottles and take advantage of the sale. I am out of plain vodka and may also buy some Versinthe absinthe. I even shined my special spoon! The ritual is so pretty. You can see it in the movie Dracula.

If you want to try absinthe for the first time, you should check out Sarah B, the inviting bar at the newly renovated Intercontinental Hotel on Saint-Antoine in Montreal. The bar is well-designed and they have many delicious cocktails to drink and yummy nibbles to devour.

But the main attraction is the collection of absinthe fountains. Neat!
